[font size=3]LOS ANGELES (CN) The Los Angeles City Council voted Friday to ask the LA Department of Water and Power to chart a course to achieve a 100 percent clean energy portfolio.

Under the motion (PDF) created by 2nd District Councilman Paul Krekorian and 11th District Councilman Mike Bonin, the Department of Water and Power will collaborate with energy experts and local universities to explore how to generate all electricity using renewable energy.

Calling Los Angeles a "leader in the fight against climate change," Mayor Eric Garcetti said the move complements his goal of having the Department of Water and Power use 50 percent renewable energy by 2030. Garcetti wants the department to stop using coal by 2025 and to move away from natural gas sources.

"Environmental stewardship is a value we treasure in LA, and I'm grateful to councilmembers Bonin and Krekorian, and the entire City Council, for bringing us another step closer to cleaner air, healthier families and a stronger economy," Garcetti said.
